CAPE GAZETI, Friday, September : )eber lr,]9 -83 Cape hockey ties Laurel, 0-0, after come-from-behind win over CR By Susan Frederick Cape Henlopen hockey kissed its sister Wednesday afternoon, coming off the Bulldog field in Laurel with a 0-0 score in over- time play. The draw followed an emotional come-from-behind 2-1 win over Caesar Rodney last week - also in overtime - to bring the Vikings to a 2-0-1 record early in the season. "Laurel is very competitive; they marked us very closely and aggressively last year," said coach Mike Eisenhour a day before the game. 'TII be looking for the same kind of game this year." The Bulldogs were true to their breed as a gripping, close-in de- fense kept Cape to zero shots on goal in the first half of action, while the Viking defenders held the Laurel front line to a mere two. Five minutes into the second pe- riod, Cape came close to a score when Amanda Hopkins hit one in to Lindsay King, who settled the bali for striker Emily Walls, who rifled it to the goal, but Laurel ten- der Kelly Riddle denied the score. After a series of unsuccessful Viking corners, possession went to the girls from west Sussex. Midfielder Tara Matthews pow- ered deep into Cape territory on Laurel's next possession, but was stopped short of the goal by Viking halfback Rachel Meluney.

ROADRUNNER SOCCER - With former Cape striker Jeremy Hurd as their leading scorer and the Reed twins, Bryan and Brad, running loose at the midfield, the Del Tech Roadrunners of George- town have posted a 3-2 record, havingplayed five overtime games. "We have a good team; we just have trouble scoring, '' said Brad Reed, or was that Bryan? The team lost a 1-0 sudden death overtime game last Sept. 19 to Bergen Community College seconds later, stopping a shot by Heather O'Neal off a Laurel cor- ner. Three more corners by Cape late in the period came up dry as Laurel goalie Riddle combined with the McCrea sisters - Tracy and Tiffany - to clear as many shots off the Cape offensive sticks. Katy Levy came off the Cape bench to clear another Laurel cor- ner attempt in the final minutes of regulation play. Lucy Short led the Viking mid- field to keep possession for much of the overtime action, but frustra- tion continued inside the 25-yard line. Walls' break hit a wall in Tiffany McCrea, and a sweet cen- ter from Short shot harmessly past the Laurel goal as no Viking could slap it in for the win in the last minute of play. Hense kept the score at zero as she stopped a final shot by O' Neal in the final sec- onds of play. Cape's junior varsity squad dominated Laurel 5-0 on scores by Maren Ford (2 goals), Lindsey Williams, Elizabeth Pratt and Cassie King. "They just played a tanstastic game," said coach Jen Eckman. Vanessa Morris record- ed the shutout. On Thursday, Sept. 17, Cape fought back from a 1-0 first half deficit to defeat a physical CR 2- 1 in a blistering overtime game.

Mil- ton football will host Milford Thursday, Oct. 1, while the field hockey team will host Laurel "It was frustrating early on. I think the girls were concerned about being hit and looking for calls from the officials. In the sec- ond half, we started to come on and basically controlled the action of the game," said Eisenhour. "They showed a lot of tough- ness. I'm very proud of them for fighting back to come up with a tie and eventually the win. CR, like every team in the Henlopen Con- ference, we knew would he a bat- tie. We knew they'd be ready for US." A Kelly Coleman goal with 7:30to play in the first half had the Riders sitting on a slim lead until Shannon Colbourne blasted what Eisenhour described as "a beautiful goal" to knot the score late in the second half, sending the game into a 10-minute overtime. Cape's defensive play held off four Rider corners early in the overtime period. On Cape's first sustained possession, the Viking offense penetrated the scoring cir- cle and drew a comer. Forward Hopkins found a hole in the de- fense to score the winning goal. Cape drew 22 comers and was good for nine shots on goal, while CR had 10 corners and seven shots on goal. Hense h'ad six saves for Cape, and Rider Jen Wt- ka had nine. The Viking junior varsitY played CR to a 0-0 draw.
